Event

Evening @ the Barn - Mary Pickford: Queen of the Movies
Film historian Christel Schmidt, editor and
contributor to the new book, "Mary Pickford:
Queen of the Movies", will be speaking about Mary Pickford's patriotic endeavors during World War I. In addition to making propaganda flms such as "Johanna Enlists"and selling war bonds, Pickford was involved
with the Red Cross, arranging for the donation of two ambulances. At the end of the war, it was Pickford's suggestion that surplus funds in the Ambulance Fund be dedicated to form a new organization, the Motion Picture Fund. This undoubtedly was Pickford's most important World War I legacy. A screening of "Johanna Enlists" (1918), from the Library of Congress' collection, will follow Ms. Schmidt's talk. Schmidt was awarded two fellowships
from the National Endowment for the Humanities for her work on Mary Pickford. Schmidt also co-edited "Silent
Movies: The Birth of Film" and the Triumph of Movie Culture. She is currently researching and writing about the careers of stage actresses during the Progressive Era.
